2013 Christmas Card Design

I used a Maine themed Christmas design this year using the spruce trees and pine cones to create the mandala and its array. I have added a pine cone border with a Christmas greeting, and also show an emerging pattern background made with photos of pine cones. I darkened it somewhat to use it for the mandala array. This magnificent tree sits in front of my brother's house. The first time I saw it, I said Christmas tree. Pine cones are the Maine state flower, so they are doubly appropriate for celebrating a Maine Christmas. Of course, other New Englanders and Northeasterners will enjoy this creation as well.

Dandelion Creations/Mainely Mandalas

Now that I am back in Maine, I have started to design Maine and New England themed creations. To that end, I have completed designs made with dandelion flowers. I have also registered my eighth domain name: Mainely Mandalas. I show the mandala, the mandala array, a dandelion border, and a background made from dandelion greens. I used a darkened version of this for the array.

Easter Lily Mandala & Array

I used the white Easter lilies to create the mandala and mandala array shown here. I also created the lily border with background. On my Zazzle site, I use the border to frame a number of popular prayers and scriptures. Any of my designs can be purchased there. You can add your own text to this border to create a unique, customized design. Zazzle makes it fun and easy. The design can be put on a poster, greeting card or any number of other products.

Easter Lilies

At Easter this year, I bought a couple of lily plants and photographed the flowers. Here I show you the first 4 photo extracts that I will use in creating my lily mandalas and arrays. I seem to be getting into a pattern of letting a holiday inspire me to creating something for it just in time for the next year. Now that I am back in Maine, I am starting to work with flowers and other subjects found in New England. I want to start with a Signs of Spring collection. While the lilies are not native, they fit that theme. I have already photographed tulips, daffodils, and dandelions. I will add crocuses, pussy willows, robins and more. The spring collection will, in turn grow into a Four Seasons series. If you have a favorite you want to see included, let me know.
